rt-tests - Programs that test various rt-features

Vendor: Scientific Linux CERN,
rt-tests is a set of programs that test and measure various components of
real-time kernel behavior. This package measures timer, signal, and hardware
latency. It also tests the functioning of priority-inheritance mutexes.
